We will meet at Mansfield and then drive to Eight mile flat to camp for two nights. we will walk to Ritchies Hut via the high track and then return via the low track with numerous river crossing subject to suitable level. Next day we drive to Bluff Hut to camp for one night after walking to the Bluff. We then need 4wd to drive to Lovick's Hut and camp there or at King Billy for 3 nights with day walks to Mt Howitt and Mt Clear. Day walks are 8-14km but all can be shortened by returning early as all are there and back walks.
